Pause eyes expansion thanks to new National Lottery funding
Pause is to receive over £1.5 million of National Lottery funding over three years, allowing it to expand its service further.
Pause has grown from a single pilot programme in 2013 to 17 Practices in operation across England by the end of this year. The Practices work with women to overcome the problems of their past, building self-confidence and resilience and giving them the skills to meet the challenges of the future. In part, the Big Lottery Fund grant will allow the charity to expand beyond the English border to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
